This Tuesday's tallies:

8 pm/ET
American Idol averaged 29.33 million total viewers over its two-hour run. That's up 1.1 mil week-to-week and on par with last year's Top 12 performance show. Biggest Loser (doing 7.66 across two hours) was down a million-plus. Beauty and the Geek scored a date with just 1.88 mil, a 44 percent plunge from last season's opener.

9 pm
Big Brother (5.92 mil) dropped 800K, while One Tree Hill sank 550 thou to hit a season low of 2.45 mil.

10 pm
Trailing an SVU repeat and ABC's Primetime (7.5 mil), Jericho matched last week's 5.87 mil. Coming next week: My video Q&A with the Skeetster!

What's your take? Are we, at long last, all Geek'd out?
